Kerry Polls the Bin Laden Tape

Osama Bin Laden's tape provoked different responses from the two Presidential candidates. George Bush made a statement of unity, vowing that all Americans whether Democrat or Republican, were resolute in their determination to defeat terror. John Kerry on the other hand, took a poll to determine what his response should be. A poll. That is a perfect summary of John Kerry as a Presidential candidate. He has no convictions, so he polls to determine his response. This should be expected. His entire stance on Iraq has been determined by what is politically expedient at the moment.

Kerry's polling for a response did not go unnoticed by the Bush/Cheney Campaign, Vice President Cheney, campaigning in New Mexico had this to say:

"The thing that I find amazing about it is that John Kerry's first response was to go conduct a poll," Cheney told supporters in Fort Dodge, Iowa. "He went into the field ... to find out what he should say about this tape of Osama bin Laden." It's as though he doesn't know what he believes until he has to go and check the polls, his finger in the air, to see which way the wind is blowing and then he'll make a decision," said the vice president, who offered no evidence to back up his claim. "George Bush doesn't need a poll to know what he believes, especially about Osama bin Laden. I don't think that's a man who is up to the task of being commander in chief," Cheney said of Kerry.

No core beliefs and the inability to take a stand on any position without checking a poll. No one in America, including John Kerry, knows what he truly believes about the war on terror and the battle of Iraq. Kerry's record of being on the wrong side of history on every issue of national security for the last 35 years.
